Producer Madhu Mantena is all set to put his weight behind his ambitious big-screen epic ‘Ramayan’ budgeted to be a staggering Rs. 300 crore.
SpotBoye reports that Mantena will get the project underway with his leads Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone. Roshan will reportedly play Ram, while Padukone will essay the role of Sita. Other cast members are yet to be finalised.
A source told the publication, “These are sensitive times. And the last thing the Ramayan needs is an underwhelming treatment or a revisionist screenplay. Mantena has deployed several researchers to project absolute accuracy and preserve complete sanctity in his film version of the venerated epic.”
